For those of you who haven't noticed (and since we're only in the "M"s on my list I'm not surprised if you haven't) I watch a lot of anime based on video games. This is because when I was in high school I decided that I was going to watch anime based on video games and there was a whole list of them; thus tons of video game-based anime on my watched list XD
Myself;Yourself is a 13 episode shonen anime. I'm not going to lie. I watched this anime because the cover of the game has a pretty girl playing a violin...
So the story follows Sana who moves back to his hometown after a number of years to find that some things have stayed the same and some have changed. There's a lot of depressing backstory that just makes me too sad to type it out so read the wiki or watch it to find out!
This is basically one of those games where you play a male character and you have tons of female love interests...thus there are 2 main guys in this anime and like 6 girls. The main story of the anime follows Sana as he remembers his depressing backstory and learns why one of his friends (Nanaka) is no longer how he remembers her. She no longer plays the violin, she's moody, and just not the happy girl he remembers her being. So we learn her depressing backstory. All-in-all I really just remember being sad a lot when I was watching this. But I can tell you that it has a happy ending so in my mind, that totally makes up for all the sadness :D
|Nanaka and Sana|
pros and cons:
- Violin playing character
- Happy ending
- Good art
- Short :D
- Such a depressing story...
